Affordable House Plans

The house plan designs in this category are all great choices for building on a budget. Not only are these homes smaller, which leads to significant savings in land, materials, and labor costs, but they trim away excess by streamlining the home's footprint with fewer foundation corners, reducing the number of purely decorative add-ons (like lots of dormers), and maximizing layout space inside. That leaves you with money to spend on the upgrades you really want -- like flooring and kitchen cabinets -- or simply to save.
